Issues with Youtube Videos being re-sized

SOLVE
New Contributor

Hi everyone, 

 

I am attempting to create a landing page with multiple Youtube videos on to be used as a step by step guide.

 

The videos show up fine in the editor view but when previewed/sent live, the videos shrink and go into a letterbox shape.  Regardless of what I try within the module, nothing seems to fix it. 

 

Has anyone encountered this?

 

Thanks for any help in advance. 

Will

The common issue I run into with this is due to a bug in HubSpot's default "modules.css"

 

The issue is with the following starting at line 17 in the modules.css file:

/* Embed Container (iFrame, Object, Embed) */
.hs-responsive-embed {
position: relative;
height: auto;
overflow: hidden;
padding-top: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0;
}

.hs-responsive-embed iframe, .hs-responsive-embed object, .hs-responsive-embed embed {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
border: 0;
}

.hs-responsive-embed,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-youtube,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-wistia,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-vimeo {
padding-bottom: 2%;
}

To fix this, just add the following in your own stylesheet to overwrite these rules: 

/* Embed Container (iFrame, Object, Embed) */
.hs-responsive-embed {
    position: relative;
    height: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding-top: 0;
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
}
.hs-responsive-embed iframe,
.hs-responsive-embed object,
.hs-responsive-embed embed {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    border: 0;
}
.hs-responsive-embed,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-youtube,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-wistia,
.hs-responsive-embed.hs-responsive-embed-vimeo {
    padding-bottom: 56.25%;
}

Alternatively, you can replace the default "modules.css" with your own CompanyModules.css as recommended in HubSpot's Boilerplate CSS. Also, if you have embeds that have aspect ratios other than 16x9 you might want to look into using something like fitvids.js

Hey @Wills9797 are you able to provide links to both the page and the YouTube video you are using in this case?

Where do you find the module.css? Is it in design manager?

Yes it is in Design Manager in the theme Hubspot created for you. It will be in Coded Files / Custom / page / Your_Theme_Folder

Hi!

 

Is anyone else having an issue inserting a video via a youtube link into their blog posts and the video being resized? Is there a fix for blogs not just landing pages?

 

Thanks!

I get the same issue with YouTube video embeds on the blog.
It's a letterbox.
I added the code to the main style sheet, and it went even thinner!

HELP!

Hi Will, 

 

We usually use responsive tables (scaffolding) for any kind of videos to make sure they look great on desktop and mobile.

 

Here's an article that explains how to use it:

http://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/scaffolding.html

 

This page is an example of 2 videos side by side using a responsible table.

 

The code usually goes like this, where AAAA would be the code of your first youtube video and BBBB the second one. Now, if you want to have margings and space between them you can add more span sections. Just remember to make them all add to 12.

 

6-6

4-4-4

1-5-5-1

1-4-2-4-1

and so on.

 

If you just want to have one video per row, you can just create 1-10-1 rows.

 

<div class="row-fluid">

<div class="span6">
AAAAA
</div>

<div class="span6">
BBBBB
</div>

</div>

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

G
